Since I've been whining on your shoulders about my GD I thought I should give you an update on what's going on with it. And a great big THANK YOU for all the information you guys linked for me. I feel a lot more informed about it and that is going to be very helpful when I see my OB next and the next time I see the specialist I have loads of questions for her and a few complaints
Anyway, I had to call in my numbers last Friday to the nurse and the numbers were good enough to keep holding out on the meds. I have to call in every Friday and if they start going wacko they will talk about meds, but it looks for now like I might be able to do this myself.
It is soooooo frustrating though. My body needs an abundance of protein and quite honestly if I have to eat another steak I'm gonna puke!! I've figured out that I have to have almost double the protein for the amount of carbs I eat and then my levels are great. The 2 things that are really helpful are dairy and meat, two things I'm not a big fan of. A girl can only eat so much yogurt!
Anyone out there have any ideas for adding a bunch of protein to my diet to help me vary it? I would be forever grateful!!! Right now I've been eating meat (bleh), nuts (mixed and pistachio), yogurt, cheese strings, sliced pepperjack cheese (might never get sick of that), and cheese curds. I think those are the ones that I've found pack the biggest protein punch without being too high in carbs.
